I am so disappointed that I purchased this chandelier. I looked at this item online for weeks and thought it would be a beautiful addition to my dining room. Well, it was not, and the main reason was because the actual item is totally different than the picture. First off, the lamp shades do not have the "tea stain" appearance that the picture represents at all - instead they are pure white with a white "marbled" effect. The lamp shades are also wider or more bulbous in shape than the picture represents and a few of them were not level but appear warped. Secondly, the chandelier appears in the picture to be a beautiful shiny bronze, but instead it is cheaply painted matte goldish with black "paint flecks" - (this makes the chandelier have a "bronzish" appearance from a distance but definately not close up). The picture also respresents the chandelier to have a more vertical or compact appearance, but instead is very wide and outspread. Lastly, the chandelier arrived in a dented box, there were some scuffs and scratches on the chandelier itself and there were a few minor glass chips on the lamp shades. Honestly, this should have went right back in the box for return but we already had the old chandelier removed and scheduled an electrician to install this one. The worst part is that I look at this chandelier in my dining room each day and only see "cheap, cheap, cheap". Do not waste your money on this product!
